It’s important to remember that your Wedding day will be unique and slightly different to any other Wedding you’ve been to. Whilst most couples Wedding day will include all the items from the above list, the order in which events happen are not set in stone. When planning your timeline, it is important to stay true to how you would like to run your Wedding day.
When creating the timeline it is also important to break down the finer details. Considerations to the following are imperative to your Wedding Day not only for the purpose of photography but also for the scheduling of your day.
Scheduling Bride & Groom Preparations
It is important to coordinate the preparations of the bridal party and the groom’s party so that your photographer can capture both. It is always great to ask the hair and make-up artists how much time is needed for their services. This will allow you to have a plan for the “getting ready photos” & will ensure you arrive to the ceremony on time.
For the bride, if you have a larger bridal party it’s always advisable to consider having more than 1 hairdresser and make-up artist so as to ensure a more efficient process. I suggest having the groom’s party preparations photographed first. This allows the bridal party to have their hair and make-up completed as close as possible to the ceremony time.
Extra tips: Get someone from your bridal party to create an awesome playlist of songs for your preparations. This is also a great idea for the groom’s party too!
Have plenty of snacks and water! There’s nothing worse than feeling hangry or dehydrated on your Wedding day. You want to feel fresh and ready to go.
This one is more for the girls. It’s great to have an emergency kit. This could include stain remover, hair spray, fashion tape, safety pins and more.
